Troy B Wiki – Troy B Biography
Troy B, 30, allegedly pushed Eva Lui, 21, and Kelsey Chang, 22, down a ravine at the Neuschwanstein ‘Cinderella’ castle in Bavaria – killing the 21-year-old and injuring her friend. The alleged killer lives in a small house in the town of Lincoln Park, Michigan, with his brother Trevor, 34. He was unfriendly, and would never greet anyone or look them in the eye, his neighbour told the German newspaper Bild. The brothers mostly stayed inside, only being seen outside to ‘walk their cat on a leash in the garden’, the neighbour added.
Troy B was allegedly also a regular in the library in his hometown Allen Park, where he spent his time playing Dungeons and Dragons. The brothers were often gone for weeks at a time to ‘work on oil fields’, but even if they were home, the house was very quiet, the neighbour said. A camping chair and snow shovel standing on the porch apparently hadn’t been moved in years. Just 30 minutes away live Troy B’s parents in the small city of Monroe, near Lake Erie. His mother, Mary Elizabeth B, told a reporter her son wasn’t even in Germany, seemingly unaware of him being arrested in Bavaria last Wednesday. Meanwhile, her husband talked on the phone, saying he would need to ‘find out what had happened’, before adding he would give no further comment.
Troy B’s former classmates at Allen Park High School near Detroit said he was a shy and inconspicuous boy that played in the school band and had a girlfriend. A former friend of the alleged killer, who he had spent several summers in a camp with, said he was ‘introverted, shy, quiet and a little peculiar’ but ultimately friendly. He said doing something like the attack in Germany would be unlike ‘the Troy he knew ten years ago’. In the brutal attack, Ms Liu and Ms Chang were thrown down a ravine, allegedly after Troy B attempted to sexually assault the 21-year-old. She died after falling down the slope, but her 22-year-old friend Ms Chang miraculously survived after her fall was stopped by a tree branch. She was released from hospital on Saturday in the town of Murnau am Staffelsee after suffering cuts, bruises and a laceration.
Troy B is 30 years old.
Troy B Arrested: Suspect in the Murder of Eva Lui, and injured Kelsey Chang
Troy B is now facing murder charges and will not be extradited from Germany. The suspect, who travelled to the country at the start of June and was staying at a boarding house in Oberstdorf, had allegedly tempted the women with a view commonly used in selfies before he began his assault. The two women are thought to have been attacked at around 2.40 pm on Wednesday. Police say they met Troy B near the Marienbrucke bridge, a narrow footbridge that at its highest point crosses 300ft above a gorge – with a stream and waterfall underneath – and offers stunning views of the castle. Police said Troy B allegedly persuaded them to follow him down a secluded trail that led to a good lookout point, where he ‘physically attacked’ the 21-year-old. When her friend tried to intervene, he allegedly choked her and pushed her down a steep slope. She fell next to her friend some 165ft below. The pair were airlifted by helicopter, but the 21-year-old died in hospital from injuries sustained in the fall.
The 30-year-old man has been held on charges of murder, attempted murder and one sexual offence. He was seen being led away from the scene in handcuffs with video taken by another tourist showing scratches on his face. Police said he has ‘had his say in court’ after refusing to speak to investigators. Under German law, suspects must be brought before a judge at a closed-door hearing by the end of the calendar day after their arrest if investigators intend to keep them in custody. The three tourists had all been staying at the same Munich hotel. The victims did not know their assailant but were on the same day trip excursion to the world-famous castle. Up to 6,000 people a day visit the castle. Footage shows the scene from a distance, with several tourists gathered looking out at a cliff face hundreds of feet away, as the helicopter descends. The video zooms in and the woman becomes visible on the side of the cliff, sitting close to where the fallen tree appears to have stopped her fall. The rescuers are lowered down towards her. Another clip MailOnline published showed one of the two women being airlifted away. Troy B fled the scene but was caught after a massive police operation involving 25 emergency vehicles. He was taken to a police station in the nearby town of Fuessen. A witness video posted online showed a man in a T-shirt, jeans and a baseball cap being led away in handcuffs by police.
